Thanks Stacy for the info
12F617 microntroller (you can program them yourself although it is quite hard because the pickit2 doesnt support them)
Brad, Just out of interest have you tried downloading the latest Device File from Microchip for the Pickit2, Ive not got a 12F617 handy so i cant try it but was wondering if that would make the 12F617 compatible with Pickit2?
Heres the latest Device File from microchip for the Pickit2 application version 2.61

I think you need to copy the file into the Directory where the Pickit2 application runs from
Heres the link to the device file on microchip:http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en023805
